      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Hello all,

I'm new to the site and impressed with the wealth of knowledge here ... My family and some friends will be houseboating with Northernaire July 20. (We've talked about this for 10 years and finally are doing it!) Someone told me I should get the necessary paperwork and fish the Canada side of the water, he says better fishing, less pressure. Comments? I'm looking for good fishing and great sites to see and swimming for the kids. I'm open to recommendations as to a general area of the lake to target during this time for walleyes and possibly crappies. If you had four days, where would you go??

Shhh...that's a local secret! While fishing on the Canadian side is a lot less aggravating and sometimes better, if there is a good-sized group coming the paperwork and extra hassle can be a pain. If it's on a weekend it will even be worse. I would take the money you save and head farther east up the lake, lots of beautiful tie up spots and great fishing close by. It's pretty hard justifying licenses, permits and learning all the regs about boats, bait, etc. if you are only going to be here a short time. I fish the Canadian side quite a bit more than our side for the reasons mentioned, but I'm here every day! Whatever you decide, enjoy your trip.

I agree with F&F. Well at times fishing is better on the Canadian side, it doesn't pay to get the extra paperwork especially if you are only here for a few days. If it were for a week that may be a different story.

As F&F said, go to the east end. There are plenty of sites in the saginaw area that have nice sandy beaches for the kids, and yet great fishing is within eyesight.

As for the crappies...Canadian waters are better, but if you stick around the Harrison Bay area, you'll be able to fish crappies in Black Bay, North Grindstone, and Sand Bay. Sand Bay has a good population of crappies and if you can get on top of them you will have some good action.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

Guys,

I really appreciate the welcome and the valuable advice. I've done a lot of fishing in my life, but am not afraid to ask for guidance on a huge new body of water like this, especially when there will be kids along on the trip and I'd like to put them onto some fish sooner than later! I want to have a plan of attack before we ever leave the dock at Northernaire. Thank you all for the input. I'll contribute a report, and may be back with more specific questions between now and the late July departure.
